Creating a creative community
about Arlene's Artist Materials
The mission of the R Gallery at Arlene’s (RG) is to exhibit artwork created by emerging and established artists from throughout our region, aims to build a safe place for the appreciation of art and fosters our community’s creativity.
Since 2017, we have presented monthly exhibitions that feature talented artists from New York’s Capital Region and beyond. Each exhibit features an Artist Reception on the first Friday of the month. Free to attend, family-friendly, and food and beverages are provided.
MON- FRI: 10 am to 6 pm
SAT: 10 am to 5 pm
The R Gallery at Arlene's is located inside Arlene's Artist Materials. Arlene's is the largest independently, family-owned, fine art supply store and frame shop in NYS's Capital Region. We are also more than great art supplies with our fantastic selection of cards, wrapping papers, and quality gift items.
Arlene’s celebrates the creativity of our community. In 2017, we developed the Makers Markets at Arlene’s to help us further that goal. The mission of the Markets is to promote the local creative community while developing a marketplace where people can purchase uniquely crafted items.
